The Claymore is a greatsword in Final Fantasy XII. It is the weakest non-plot related greatsword, and the weakest that requires a license. Unlike many other weapon types, the early greatswords' stats were not decreased for the Zodiac versions, and their obtain points were not moved toward the beginning of the game. Greatswords become an alternative weapon type to one-handed swords for the Knight mid-game.

Its license costs 50 LP. In the Zodiac versions, it can be used by the Knight, White Mage and Red Battlemage. The White Mage needs to unlock Zodiark to reach it on the board, and the Red Battlemage needs to unlock Ultima.

FFRK Claymore is a weapon.


The claymore was a type of large, two-handed blade. It was used by Scottish troops circa 1500 - 1700 CE. The word comes from the Gaelic claidheamh mor meaning "very big sword", although the name was probably not used contemporaneously with the actual weapon.
